Problems at Work?

  • First and foremost, it is important to clearly discern between a problem and a part of the job that is not enjoyable.
  • If there is a problem, discuss the situation with your supervisor.
  • When possible, go to your supervisor with a solution to the problem and not just a complaint.
  • Give the problem a reasonable amount of time to be resolved.
  • If there is no resolution to the problem, contact Smeal with DETAILS AND FACTS about the situation. Contact Krista White.
